Baron DE HIRSCH #general

Steve Pickoltz
 

Are there any list of names, of the people the Baron de Hirsch foundation sent
to the USA? I am particularly interested in names of those who went to south
Jersey in the area near the Alliance cemetery.

As has been explained here many times, there are no rules for
converting between English and Hebrew/Yiddish names. While many
Biblical names have their English equivalent, it is still up to the
parents to decide what the names will be. I know people whose English
names have nothing to do with their Hebrew names. Or that their English
name merely shares a first letter with the Hebrew name.

Regarding Shaindel, I have a family member that married a Shawnee whose
Hebrew/Yiddish name was Sheina. That seems to be the exception. If you
want naming suggestions, search the Internet - there are many naming
sites.

Well, I personally know a Scheindel whose name in English is
Shayndel. If the person wanted to choose a more popular
English name, the choice could be any female name that was used
at that period of time. The most likely choice might be a name
starting with Sh. Perhaps Shirley? But there is no such thing
as what it "would be".

While it is impossible to say for sure, one possibility for her
English name might be Jenny or even Jane. (these being sound-alikes
for the Yiddish name Sheindel. I also know someone whose "English"
name, Shandelle, is simply an "anglicized" spelling of Sheindel,

Although I don't know the derivation, I have seen the name Jennie
used, and a quick Google search shows that they are commonly used together.

Navigating the On-Line Canadian Passenger Lists #general

Steve Orlen
 

Dear Cousins,

We've been given some good advice lately on how to navigate the new
on-line Canadian Passenger Lists. They're indexed not by passenger
name, but by year, ship name, port of departure & arrival, et cetera.
If you don't have at least a year & a ship name, searching for a
relative would be impossible. We've been advised to put in a minimal
amount of information - 1907 - Ottawa (the name of the ship) - which
turned out to be good advice.

So I found the several arrivals of the Ottawa arriving at Montreal
for 1907, and learned quickly that the manifests are alphabetical by
surname. And once I got past the "L" listings (Rachel Liberman), I
went on to another arrival. Until I realized that each manifest
includes maybe 6-10 rolls through the alphabet! And it's relatively slow...

Best of luck,

Steve Orlen

Bronnaya Gora, Belarus near Baranovichi #general

Larry Schenker <lpsca@...>
 

I am trying to locate Bronnaya Gora, Belarus the site where 50,000 Jews
were massacred during World War II. It is near Baranovichi with Lat:
53:08:29N (53.1415) Lon: 26:03:04E (26.0511) and North of Pinsk Lat:
52:07 - Lon: 26:04.

Using ShtetlSeeker and searching on Bronnaya Gora two hits come up, but
both are SE of Minsk, whereas Bronnaya Gora is West or SW of Minsk.

Can anyone please give me the latitude and longitude of Bronnaya Gora?
